C. Dan Adams … Donor PUBLICITY STUNT???

Published

on

Donor PUBLICITY STUNT???: Well … below are the donor totals through 9/30/2019 from the SC Department of Revenue that we were able to obtain because Jeff Davis (the target of anonymous and defamatory political email attacks) filed a FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT lawsuit against the SC Department of Revenue. Probably why these email attacks started up on 9/25/2019, but more on that later.

And the DONATIONS are worse than ANYONE could have expected …. and explains why (not so) Exceptional SC leadership REFUSED to tell school leaders how much had been raised.

But instead of #FireChadConnelly doing something to fix this (if he is even capable … which we doubt) …. Chad was hanging out at the Ritz Carlton in New Orleans this month doing “political” stuff WHEN HE SHOULD BE RAISING FUNDS FOR YOUR CHILD’S SCHOLARSHIP HERE IN SOUTH CAROLINA!!!

And instead of addressing the DATA BREACH …. on Friday (not so) Exceptional SC sent out a CELEBRATORY email promoting a $100,000 donation from C. Dan Adams.

Our question …. #1 WHY DID C. DAN ADAMS NOT DONATE EARLIER IN THE YEAR (or did he, and this is just a “stunt”?) …. and #2 WHO IS C.DAN ADAMS????

Normally praising donors is a good thing …. and we would not call it out … but C. Dan Adams is no ordinary donor …. and in fact, his organization was a major cause of this DEBACLE!!!!

For full article, click HERE.

PLUS … there are some rather NASTY posts about C. Dan Adams online by public interest group(s) about how he takes advantage of low income families.

And ironically … a FAILED SOUTH CAROLINA BANK that cost the FDIC and taxpayers $75 MILLION DOLLARS!!!!  Here is the FDIC report as well … CLICK HERE.

(For full article click HERE.)

And WORST of all as it applies to this program … C. Dan Adams organization …. Palmetto Promise Institute … was intimately involved in this 2016 GOVERNMENT TAKEOVER of the scholarship program.  

REMEMBER … it was C. DAN ADAMS’ PALMETTO PROMISE INSTITUTE that said this GOVERNMENT TAKEOVER would make the program BIGGER. BETTER. FASTER. #MAJORFAIL!!!  Palmetto Promise Institute has removed that failed “Legislative Analysis” from their website … but we have a copy.  Click image below.  

REMEMBER, DOR RECOMMEND THIS DEBACLE … RECOMMENDED THE GOVERNMENT TAKEOVER … AND NOW THEY REFUSE TO STEP UP TO FIX IT!!!

We will have MUCH MORE in the coming weeks … stay tuned!!!

Only $165,579 raised in September

Published

Friends, it is not really getting any better is it? 

Our personal SC State Representative, Jason Elliott (R – Greenville) … not someone we like anymore as he has lied to us for years now and is working with his PAID ADVOCATE “masters” at Palmetto Promise Institute (Jim DeMint, Ellen Weaver & “Dr.” Oran Smith) … promised that his bill H 3899 that became law on May 17th, 2021 would fix everything. 

IT HAS NOT!!! 

On September 14th, 2021, (not so) Exceptional SC announced that there would be NO FALL SCHOLARSHIPS.  Why?  Because they don’t have the money because Rep. Jason Elliott’s H 3899 was a LIE and a COMPLETE FAILURE!!!

#FollowTheMoney!!!!

We dug the top picture up from the archives … what Jason told us a while back.  The schools are satisfied???  #Really???  He doesn’t respond anymore … curious why?  Sad …

And this from last summer / fall.  Remember Jason & Palmetto Promise Institute‘s other bright idea.  A lawsuit was filed the day after their idea was announced … and the trial court IMMEDIATELY SHUT IT DOWN!!!

And a few months  later in October the SC SUPREME COURT ruled their MONIED SPECIAL INTEREST plan UNCONSITUTIONAL!!!

But guess what … in September 2021 … they have figured it out now???  Back pushing the same MONIED SPECIAL INTEREST PLAN!!!  Anybody buying this???

Shame on YOU Rep. Jason Elliott!!!

Published

on

No surprise … but last week (not so) Exceptional SC confirmed NO FALL SCHOLARSHIPS!!!

Their ONE JOB is to issue scholarships … and THEY FAILED AGAIN!!!

We (and y’all) knew this because we have been tracking their bank balances … but they finally admitted it this week.  See their full email update below.

And yes, this is their FIRST email / parents update since May 27th … nearly 4 months.  Why are parents and school officials being kept in the dark??? 

#FireExceptionalSC!!!

Sorry folks, as predicted, nothing is changing!

INDEPENDENT NON-PROFITS … just like in every other state in the nation … is the only thing that will fix this debacle.

SLED UPDATE – Chad Connelly Embezzlement Matter

Published

on

Back in March, the South Carolina Attorney General’s Office issued a FORMAL referral to SLED (State Law Enforcement Division) to investigate the Chad Connelly “Embezzlement Matter”.  

This is a known and disclosed fact … yet Chad Connelly has been running around South Carolina telling folks there is no SLED investigation.  Wow, this is sad. 

Well, last week we sent letters inquiring into the status of the investigation.  It has been four months, so maybe they had an update.

Well, we received a reply … and apparently the investigation is still ongoing. 

This is going to be BIG friends.  We don’t think this one can be swept under the rug.  We are told that South Carolina law enforcement knows they have to do something and they know people are watching.  South Carolina is known for it’s PUBLIC CORRUPTION

What has gone on with our school choice program is in our opinion PUBLIC CORRUPTION at its worst!!!

“SLED or any other agency”???OR ANY OTHER AGENCY???  Who else may be looking into Chad Connelly and this embezzlement matter???  Maybe just standard lawyer language … or was this a clue that other law enforcement agencies are looking into this matter.

This is a highly political matter.  Chad Connelly is friends with A LOT of political figures.  But even though some folks have tried to cover up for Chad … there are people trying to expose this matter for us, for you, and most importantly for your K-12 children.  

Stay tuned … and KEEP PUSHING!!!  Expose them all!!!
